RSC is yellow with orange.
I forgot to get a finished pic of the whole machine but this gives you the idea. The white block is 14" square.
I keep the general shape going of the pattern so it will be big enough.
Then I place a layer of fusible interfacing, fusible dots side to the right side and place pattern on top.
Sew all the way round. snip the interfacing, and carefully turn right sides out. This leaves the applique with dimension, but gives a fusible side to attach it to the background for decorative sewing around. This time I used a yellow variegated Oliver Twist hand dyed cotton thread and a buttonhole stitch.
Let's take a closer look, shall we??
The wee pink flower was appliqued on after piecing, as it was just a cutout without fusible backing.
Yep, I often lay out non fused pieces over others and sew them down, allowing for a tiny bit of fray.
Keep looking, you'll see the buttonhole stitch and...
It's all gone with this machine quilt.
See the cockatiel?
tiger lily under him?
Stars, and pretty florals? All stuff I like.
